Introducing the Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0 Step Through Active Electric Bike – your ultimate ticket to zippy, electrifying adventures! Think of the Vado as your trusty steed of speed, ready to whisk you away with a blend of velocity, dependability, and a dash of swagger. Whether you're packing it up with your essentials or just eager to hit the road, whether it's a workday commute or a jaunt to the fitness sanctuary, the Vado's turbocharged oomph and colossal range are here to sling you from 'point A' to 'point B' before you can say "warp speed."

The Specialized Vado is your one-stop shop for electrifying escapades. It effortlessly marries nimble handling with supreme coziness, boasting a motor endurance that'll keep you rolling for up to a whopping 90 miles. This, my friend, is the gold standard of its league.

Behold the TURBO heart that powers the Vado, a marvel of tech that seamlessly blends electric might with a dash of magic. Not only does it grant you superhero-worthy pedal power, but it also doubles as your bike's bouncer, dishing out training tidbits, playing the role of a full-blown bike computer, and even offering 93 miles (that's 150 kilometers, mind you!) of unbridled range. Talk about riding on lightning!

Buckle up for the POWER-PACKED escapade – it's like you, but speedier! The Turbo Full Power enchantment takes your pedal-pushing gusto and multiplies it by four, turning even the steepest hills into a Sunday stroll. Yep, conquering any terrain is now as easy as swiping right.

Get cozy and confident in the saddle – we've mastered the art of comfy cruising. The Vado's posture-perfect design promises rides that feel like hugs from a cloud. Those hydraulic disc brakes? They're the speed whisperers, and the chunky tires? Grip masters, here to make every twist and halt a cinematic masterpiece.

Bumps, meet your match: let an 80mm front suspension fork, plush tires, and a suspension seat post make your ride as smooth as silk on a breezy day. Harsh jolts from 'A' to 'B'? Consider them evicted.

Worried about sticky-fingered scoundrels? Fret not! The Vado comes with a built-in anti-theft force field. A casual press of a button sidelines the motor's mischief, and no motor activation happens without your phone's secret handshake or your personal pin. The battery? It's locked down on the bike or ready to be your portable energy companion. And if a meddlesome miscreant tries to make a move, trust us, the Vado's alarm will play the ultimate "Don't mess with me" tune. Take a hike, burglars!

Bear in mind, speedsters, that the motor's 'cut-off' speed might moonwalk a bit depending on where you roam – regional rules and all that jazz. And yes, it might tango with your range – more speed could mean a tad less mileage. But remember, the Vado's not just a bike – it's an electrified dance party on wheels!


  • Turbo Full Power 2.0E motor and 530Wh battery offer an unparalleled riding experience, providing a smooth, seamless, and shockingly quiet amplification of your efforts, up to 28 mph. The integrated controller responds to your pedal inputs resulting in intuitive amplification of your efforts with an incredibly natural feel.
  • MasterMind and Specialized app - The MasterMind display reveals all relevant info about your ride and allows real-time tuning of support levels. MasterMind seamlessly integrates with the Specialized app for range optimization tools, advanced tuning, on-ride diagnostics, and more.
  • Proven Smooth Efficiency - We designed a custom testing mechanism to analyze bumps at even the smallest frequency to increase comfort and vision. That precision, paired with higher volume tires, and an 80 mm suspension fork, will flatten roads before your eyes.
  • Turbo System Lock - Use the Specialized app to disable your bike’s motor and activate the motion sensor alarm. Once locked, the motor cannot be enabled again except by the owner.
  • Fully Integrated Removable and Lockable Downtube Battery - Easy to charge, easy to secure.
  • Equipped with DRYTECH Fenders, LED front and rear lights, and 27kg capacity rear HD Rack. The rear rack is compatible with child bike seats, and the bike is also rated to pull a thru-axle trailer.
  • Long-Range - With a ride-anywhere range, go up to 68 miles (110 km) or 5 hours on a single charge (eco mode).
